Housing Waiting List
Students who submit University Housing Applications and Fees after the above deadlines OR University Housing is at capacity will be placed on the University Housing Waiting List. If University Housing is not available, students are responsible for making housing arrangements off campus. Students on the waiting list may be offered alternative housing spaces or off-campus housing.
Housing assignments are given on a first come, first served basis according to: 1) the date the University Housing Application and Fee are received from the student, 2) the date the student completes his/her FAFSA, AND 3) the date the student obtains satisfactory status with the University. Every effort will be made to honor a student’s preference of residence hall and room type. However, a particular room, residence hall, nor room type is not guaranteed. Room change requests will be considered after September 1 of each year for the fall semester, February 1 of each year for the spring semester, and June 1 of each year for the summer session. Requests are not guaranteed.
Roommate requests are not guaranteed. Roommate assignments will be arranged as necessary. Students desiring to room with each other must do the following:
- Both individuals must request each other and enter both the name and KSU ID number for the requested roommate on their individual University Housing Application;
- Both individuals must request the same rankings of residence halls and room types; and
- Both individuals must complete the housing application process within five working days of each other.
A student forfeits his or her assigned room when he or she has not checked into the residence hall by noon the next day after the official Move-In Day. Students who need to check into the residence hall after the deadline must submit a written notice via email to firstname.lastname@example.org, fax at (502)597-5896, or letter to the Office of Residence Life prior to the official Move-In Day. Failure to give notice of checking in may result in reassignment or loss of assignment.
University Housing Cancellations
When an application has been processed and a contract has been signed for the upcoming year, cancellations can be made before the specified deadline with no penalty. However, room and board charges may be assessed to the student’s account if cancellations are made after July 1 of each year for the fall semester, after December 15 of each year for the spring semester and after June 1 of each year for the summer session. University Housing Application Fees are nonrefundable.
